Media Advisory - Results to be released of first national study of local children’s programs
The City of Toronto will release the results of the first national study that examines the local provision of children’s services in Canadian cities, including child care, kindergarten, and out-of-school-hours care for six- to 12-year-olds.

Date: Wednesday, July 5
Time: 9 a.m.
Location: Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W., Meeting Room C

The City of Toronto took the lead in organizing the study and participated with 10 other Canadian cities, including St. John’s, Halifax, Montreal, Sherbrooke, Toronto, Sudbury, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary, Vancouver and Whitehorse. Rianne Mahon and Jane Jenson conducted the study, which was funded by Social Development Canada, the City of Toronto and the Vancouver Joint Council on Child Care.

Rianne Mahon is Director of the Institute of Political Economy and a member of the School of Public Policy and Administration and the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Carleton University in Ottawa. Over the past decade she has focused on the politics of child care, producing numerous articles and book chapters.

Jane Jenson is Professor of Political Science and the Canada Research Chair in Citizenship and Governance at the Université de Montréal. Between June 1999 and 2004, she was the Director of the Family Network of Canadian Policy Research Networks, Inc., a policy think tank in Ottawa.
